I Timothy 2:1, 2 (Pt. 5)  Thought/Prayer:  Is Peaceable Boring?  Topics:  2 at end.

“I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men: For kings, and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity.”  DRB (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 

An aspect of this scripture that might seem rather mild is the part about living quietly and peaceably.  Some of us with rather gregarious personalities might say, “What?  Live quietly?  Well . . . Boring.”  But is this what it means?  Surely not.  God invented fun and derring-do.  Surely He brought the mountains into existence knowing that many will attempt scaling them to their tops just because they’re “there.” 

Well, whatever we think of the word “quiet” here, we might all agree that a quiet life may have to do with refraining from stirring up trouble.  God does not like troublemakers (Proverbs 6:19).  Not that we are to avoid trouble all together . . . sometimes our faith causes tensions that we would not choose.  But surely that is different from someone who just enjoys seeing others squirm from words and actions intended to cause squirming!

Let us think of our quiet lives as being those that are in order and do not cause others needless stress.  Would this not also be a peaceable life?  Peaceful?  A life not dedicated to fighting and infightings?  To picture a quiet, peaceful life as being boring would be to miscalculate the meaning here.  And more than that, a meaningful, peaceful life can be brought about, at least in part, through our prayers for those in leadership and governance over us all.

Lord, we need help to understand this all.  Sometimes we just need to be reminded that to take up a banner of conflict for no good reason (no reason of Yours) is not Your desire for us.  And along with this, Lord, help us to pray for our leaders in order that they may lead us and legislate the path that will take us to peace and an “interesting” quiet.  Help this to lead to more of those in leadership knowing about the true LIFE that You give each of us, living already on Earth, or preborn.

Topics:  Pray for the heart to live a peaceable life, and to translate that into created-LIFE work.
